Author Note: this is going to be a drabble, so chapters will be anywhere between 100-600 words.
Garrett ran and ran until he crossed over into the Denali’s territory, his feet coming to an instant stop in the snow laden field with enough force to send up a spray of the white powder. But he cared not for that, care not that he knew that if he were still human his heart would be jumping out of his chest.
Even now it ached fiercely, his useless lungs squeezing in a way he had not felt for an age.
Oh god… She was Enyo… He could still feel the flames lick at his legs, reaching for open wounds and devouring his venom whole. A hungry beast and she… he… oh god…
He ran. Like a coward.
All because he had known the rage behind her crimson eyes, knew the sound of her sardonic laugh as she tore through newborns without mercy. He had seen the Major in battle, had heard and felt Enyo’s wrath.
She stood upon the battlefield
Her hair gleaming in blood
She stood in the flames of death
And savoured the screams of chaos
They chanted her name in reverence
While others ran in fear
For she was Enyo
The sister of War
“Garrett? Garrett! What happened are you okay?” Kate’s voice rung out in panic as she saw her friend gasping for unneeded breath, she had seen him panic once in the time they have known each other and it was she who had to explain to him what had happened.
Her eyes scanned the trees for whatever had caused this, for the woman above anything before focusing her attention back onto Garrett. “Calm Garrett, you’re safe. Tell me what happened.”
“War… Death… Fire.” Garrett managed to gasp out. “Ran.”
Kate felt her heart clench. “Oh Garrett.”
Her hand carded softly through his hair as she lowered them to the icy ground. “Was it what we spoke about? Was it something she said?”
“Yes.” He replied but stilled his tongue, his mind screaming to not share what he had been told, that even though he was terrified… he needed to protect her.
He couldn’t understand why, seeming as she was the monster under the bed in their world, along with her brother. Even in her supposed death everyone didn’t utter her name, nor that of her brothers in fear of invoking their wrath.
Ares and Enyo had built a legacy in scorched earth and spilt venom.
Yet now instead of fire, all he could see was flat crimson eyes and a tired face.
Author Note: I’m still alive? I’m sure you would have killed me after the last chapter… Also why did no one tell me I was spelling Eleazar’s name wrong? Well it’s too late to fix that now.
